Maureen Johnson (born February 16, 1973) is an American author of young adult fiction. Her published novels include 13 Little Blue Envelopes, The Name of the Star, Truly Devious, and Suite Scarlett. Among Johnson's works are collaborative efforts such as Let It Snow, a holiday romance novel of interwoven stories co-written with John Green and Lauren Myracle, and a series of novellas found in anthologies The Bane Chronicles, Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, and Ghosts of the Shadow Market.

Johnson was born in Philadelphia and attended an all-girl Catholic preparatory high school. She graduated from the University of Delaware in 1995 with a degree in English. Johnson later worked variously as literary manager of a Philadelphia theater company, a waitress in a theme restaurant, a secretary, a bartender in Piccadilly, and an occasional performer in New York City. She studied both writing and theatrical dramaturgy at Columbia University, where she received her MFA in Writing.

Johnson's debut novel The Key to the Golden Firebird was published in May 2004 by HarperTeen. Centered around themes of grief and resilience and set in the suburbs of Philadelphia a year after his passing, the novel depicts three sisters of different age as they individually process and come to understand their father's death, and their paths ahead. The Key to the Golden Firebird entered the market during a resurgence of popular interest in the young adult fiction genre. In 2005, it received starred reviews from both School Library Journal and Booklist.

Na noite de natal, uma inesperada tempestade de neve transforma uma pequena cidade num inusitado refúgio romântico, do tipo que se vê apenas em filmes. Bem, mais ou menos. Porque ficar presa à noite dentro de um trem retido pela nevasca no meio do nada, apostar corrida com os amigos no frio congelante até a lanchonete mais próxima ou lidar sozinha com a tristeza da perda do namorado ideal não seriam momentos considerados românticos para quem espera encontrar o verdadeiro amor. Mas os autores bestsellers John Green, Maureen Johnson e Lauren Myracle revelam a surpreendente magia do Natal nestes três hilários e encantadores contos de amor, interligados, com direito a romances, aventuras e beijos de tirar o fôlego. Quando o trem que deveria levar Jubileu para a Flórida atola na neve, ela decide se aventurar do lado de fora. Por sorte, encontra uma lanchonete aberta: a Waffle House, onde conhece Stuart, um rapaz que ainda não se recuperou totalmente de um coração partido. Enquanto isso, Tobin e seus amigos, JP e Duke, estão curtindo a véspera de Natal escondidos em casa, assistindo a uma maratona de James Bond. Mas, apesar da nevasca, os três decidem enfrentar a noite fria e seguem para a Waffle House da cidade - ou assim eles pensam... Já a vida de Addie parece miserável desde o término do seu namoro. Agora, um dia depois do Natal, ela precisa provar que não é egoísta - e vai fazer de tudo para cumprir uma promessa, mesmo que isso signifique enfrentar o passado.… (mais)
